Commercial kitchens can certainly benefit from the efficiency and utility of compartment sinks. But with the many different types available, finding the right one for your needs can be a challenge. In this blog, we are discussing the different types of sinks available in the market to help you decide on the perfect unit for your kitchen.

Three-Compartment Sinks 

Do you need a sink with different partitions for sanitizing, washing, and rinsing? The three-compartment sink—which is also considered the classic and most common type—is likely to be your best bet. It is intuitively easy to use and can hold standard dishware, flatware, or cookware in each compartment. The best three-compartment sinks are designed to maintain a compact footprint.

Two-Compartment Sinks

This type of compartment sink is best for applications that require food thawing and prep in separate basins.It is available in different layouts and configurations, some with drain boards. Bowl sizes vary widely, too. Choose a deep basin design if you use a lot of large stock pots.

Four-Compartment Sinks
If you need greater versatility and space is not an issue, a four-compartment sink might serve your requirements best. Each basin in this larger-footprint unit can be dedicated to one function, such as scraping, rinsing, washing, and sanitizing.

One-Compartment Sinks

Mainly used for veggie washing or for utility, these types of sinks are space-saving—perfect for smaller kitchens. There are basic models with just the basin, but you can also buy a unit with a drainboard for stacking clean pots, pans, kitchen utensils, and dishes.

Other Things to Consider

When buying compartment sinks, it’s best to choose those that are made of corrosion-resistant stainless steel. Rounded corners make cleaning easier. Some types of compartment sinks come with adjustable legs so you can configure it at your desired height. Choose a unit with a waste chute and dump sink for easier trash and debris disposal. Details like rolled edges can help contain splashes, drilled holes for faucet installation, and swirl drains for efficient water drainage all make a difference. You might also be interested in accessories like basket strainers, which may come in handy later.
